The highly anticipated adidas and Dragon Ball Z collaboration has prompted a creative outbreak of fan sneaker concepts. A noteworthy one is a hypothesized partnership between Nike and the aforementioned popular Japanese animated series.
Illustrator and graphic designer Walsh Design has superimposed Dragon Ball Z character motifs and colorways upon twelve of Nike's classic silhouettes— including the Air Max 1, Air VaporMax and the Air Max 90. Through combining the popular 90s anime and staple shoe designs by the Nike brand, Walsh Design is able to tap into the nostalgic cravings of the consumer. Giving the confirmed power of the masses, it is possible for the illustrator's fan sneaker concepts to one day become a reality. Until then, consumers have the adidas and Dragon Ball Z collaboration to look forward to this Fall.
